For those of you who remember the very beginnings of this blog, you remember one of the four people it addresses is a fan of The Lakers. Here in San Antonio, The Lakers are quite popular. If you go to the AT$T Center, you’ll see tons of The Lakers fans here. Normally.
By the way, they are The Lakers on this blog because of Fox Sports Radio’s near-continuous discussion of them … despite the fact The Lakers The suck! I didn’t think sports talk radio talked about teams that suck? Unless they live near the broadcasters of course.
Anyway, I’m going out there Wednesday night to see the Spurs play them. Not really, I’m going to see how many The Lakers fans show up. When you have for-real band wagoners, they won’t show up to see an awful team get pummeled by probably one of the top three teams in the league.
I know there are fans of The Lakers everywhere. They are the most popular or second most popular NBA team in all 50 states. But I suspect most of them are band wagoners, only interested when they are winning.
It’s going to be cool observing the few real The Lakers fans out there, watching with sad faces while The Lakers get pounded by Spurs backups. It’s quite enjoyable seeing bandwagoners not showing up to sporting events.
